Pamela Aidan is back!

The creator of the Fitzwilliam Darcy, Gentleman series is back with a delightful online novella. Young Master Darcy begins with Fitzwilliam Darcy returning for Christmas from his first term at Eaton. Ms Aidan gives us a glimpse into the life of the Darcy family, and her vision of how Jane Austen's Darcy came to be a man "given good principles, but left to follow them in pride and conceit."

Other Austen-based stories by Susan Kaye:
"If I Dream, I Have You ..." If Anne Elliot and Frederick Wentworth had not met again while Anne stayed with Charles and Mary in the fall of 1814, but after her arrival in Bath in early 1815, things might have been very different for one of Austen's favourite couples.

Love Suffers Long And Is Kind, with Laura Louise. On the gravel path, after Frederick and Anne exchange those feelings and promises of an earlier time, he tells her: "I was hers in honour if she wished it ... " The "her" is Louisa Musgrove, and this "what--if"  explores how Persuasion might have looked had Louisa Musgrove wished to marry Captain Wentworth. (Warning: Many hate the idea of separating Frederick and Anne-in the beginning-but some come to love it better than the original!)

Read along as the first draft for "For You Alone ... " second in the series, is posted online.


Mercy's Embrace by Laura Louise

Love Suffers Long and Is Kind ends with Frederick Wentworth married to Louisa, and Anne Elliot about to marry James Benwick. While Anne happily settles into married life, Elizabeth Elliot realizes hers is becoming very unsettled! As a woman approaching the "years of danger," she is no longer a young girl in her first blush of youth, or a woman past her prime. Miss Elliot is that rare creature that has improved in looks as she has grown older. But, is she growing finer as a human being, and would anyone notice if she did? One handsome man of the sea has noticed, and is doing everything in his power to have her.

Laura Louise is also a comedienne at heart and pokes a bit of good-natured fun at the adaptations of Austen.

We are proud to announce a new addition to the Guild!
